Galileo Galilei - Swan

I love every single song by this band...that's all I have to say on that point. Hopefully I'll get to see them live some day!

I was walking around campus today and it struck me just how different it is to go to school here in California, compared to Vancouver. The main difference, of course, is the sunshine...but then that sunshine effects everything else. Seeing students walking around in brightly colored shorts and T-shirts and tank tops and sunglasses...eating frozen yogurt and lounging on the grass...not scurrying about in rain and darkness...it's like a different world and I quite like it. It makes learning more fun, although it's harder to concentrate when all you want to do is eat the previously mentioned frozen yogurt while lounging on that lovely green grass. 

I met more lovely students (and teachers!) today and I can't wait to start teaching! 

Also, spanakopita may have become one of my favorite foods...somehow it sneaked up on me and now I can't get enough of it :-O

  1. The pros and cons of beautiful weather! ;) I think I'd go for brightly colored clothes and frozen yogurt any day (the main color around here seems to be grey). Although I totally agree, it's kinda hard to work when it's so nice ... hmm ...

    Looking forward to hearing about teaching! :)

    The first time I ate spanakopita was in college and it was dreadful! I've since had excellent spanakopita and discovered that it's delicious! I can understand your obsession :)
